To put this thread back on the boring intended path, I have a few basic questions about the helix I didn't notice were answered yet. Apologies if I missed them somehow.
1. Does the expression pedal have an on/off switch? (i.e. To turn a wha effect on and off)
2. Are external expression pedals with on/off switches supported, to provide a similar function to question 1?
3. Is there a function to defeat the cab/mic simulators to run my live power amp stereo guitar cabs setup?
4. Does this unit have enough resource headroom to run a reasonable dual amp patch? ( a gate, an overdrive, eq, modulator and a reverb. I don't need twelve of anything to prove how bad lollipop it is )
I dumped a hd500 and went back to my x3 live due to this last issue. I'm hopeful I can upgrade to something with more updated amp models that will work for me without going 2k plus in the hole. I'm only a hobbyist musician, albeit a serious one.
And if I get the attention of DI or other L6 staff, can I ask why you got away from modeling the Engl Powerball? It sounds a whole mess better than the FB in my humble opinion.
